The advantages of optical fiber compared to the technologies that preceded it are innumerable, it represents the most advanced technology available today for home networks, as it guarantees a much more stable and fast connection. 

A cable is a thin glass thread the size of a hair that carries data in the form of pulses of light. The light, generated by a laser, unable to go out due to the layers external to the glass core, is reflected along the entire central core of the cable, making the data reach its destination in the form of a light signal: which can be the cabinet, or the street cabinet for mixed copper FTTC networks, or directly the home if we are talking about FTTH networks, depending on the type optical fiber available in the area.

Differences with ADSL

The data transmission systems we were used to until a few years ago such as ADSL no longer seem able to meet the needs of workers and families who regularly use the internet for leisure, entertainment, hobby or for professional projects.

This is because ADSL networks still use the copper cable of the traditional home telephone line to transmit data, at speeds much slower than the speeds of a fiber optic cable. In fact, Enel Energia's optical fiber can reach speeds, for FTTH technology, up to 1 Gbps in download and 300 Mbps in upload  as for the new offer Enel Energia fiber, while ADSL reaches a maximum of 30 Mbps in download and 2 Mbps in upload. This marked difference is immediately noticeable through a much faster and more fluid browsing experience.

ADSL is also affected by chronic problems related to the stability of the connection, since the copper cable is susceptible to interference of the electromagnetic and atmospheric type and suffers from dispersion of the signal due to the distance from the starting telecommunication exchange.

Benefits of optical fiber for families

With a fiber optic connection, as in the new offers Fibra di Enel Energia, the whole family can surf at the same time with many different devices, thanks to an integrated connection, stable and fast.

A stable connection can therefore let us take advantage of advanced services such as gaming online, watching movies in UHD 4K quality, fast uploading to the cloud of our photo albums, services related to home automation or telemedicine.

Benefits of optical fiber for workers

Enjoying the quality of fiber optic networks is almost obligatory for all professionals who work or run their business from home. Uploading large files, sharing a job or an elaborate presentation live, a meeting with customers or with your collaborators can no longer take place without a fast connection, which allows you to react in real time.
